Happy Thanksgiving!! We are hosting this year and keeping it small which means that our house smells like turkey and all of the fixins. Thanksgiving has always been one of my favourite holidays but I do have to say now that I am a Mom it is even more important. It is a time to reflect and to also look ahead. It is a holiday not centered around stuff because goodness knows we all have too much of that already! We all get to sit around a table, light some candles, drink some wine and enjoy a full home cooked meal and what is better and more comforting than that!?

mood 1. trying to talk me into something...even though we were already headed down the road to get Verna's doughnuts for breakie. 

mood 2. clearly NOT getting his way and he has entered sass mode. I am clearly treating him poorly (ahem...doughnuts, Oliver!) 

mr. happy pants at his 6 month dr. appointment. And yes, you read that correctly, Huck is 6 months old. I can barely stand it. He did wonderfully and loved hamming it up for the doctors, nurses, as well as that handsome baby stuck in the mirror. Here are the nugget's stats. Weight: 18lbs 11oz (71%) Height: 27.5" (82%) Noggin: 46.4cm (99%). All in all he did really well although the doctor did say he can and should be sleeping through the night...tell that to Huck who eats up to 12oz of food overnight! Oh and he was giggling for the nurse until she jabbed him with four shots. Poor baby turned beet red and yelled directly at her, not me. He stopped crying pretty much straightaway after I picked him up but he was giving that nurse the stink eye.   

two cheeky boys.

i really do like him...a lot. 


a rub a dub dub...silly boy in a tub.  sometimes when you are sick you just need to take a tub and although he protested at first Oliver stayed in the bubble bath until his fingers and toes were wrinkled and he in fact did feel better. See Mama knows how to fix it, sometimes!

messy face...messy eater...this kid eats ALL the time. Some of it goes into his mouth. 

all three of my boys chic chatting away. there is a lot of love in our house.

A Walk in the Woods.

Over the weekend we went to the Middlesex Fells Reservation to go for a hike along the Skyline Trail. We have been so lucky to have some beautiful, bright, sunny weather that I wish we could bottle it up and re-live it in the depths of winter.
